Wow, given the effort that does a great job! However I tried it with a few different magic wand settings and still couldn't get the bullets as crisply defined as you did: Shadows are preserved on some and edge highlights are whitened on others.

magic wand tolerance set at 32, with contiguous not clicked.  I had to select the outer

whites and those inside the trigger guard separately, and I selected the shadows

separately. And I selected near the edges of the shadows to avoid the lighter shadows.  I also tried with contiguous selected, but it was not as effective.  gc
